If you could trace each trajectory leading from the creative soul of Nigerian-American entrepreneur, software engineer and poet, Uche Ogbuji, and illuminate them in light, you would have a supernova of genius on your hands. Not only has he already made a name for himself in the software world as an early (and well-published) adopter of XML, but he is now taking on the poetry world by storm. And as if that isn’t enough, he is also founding engineer at Zepheira. In his spare time, he coaches and plays soccer, snowboards and hones feats of martial artistry through the medium of American kenpo. Nigerian born, he now orbits near Boulder, CO with his amazing wife and four children. Uche Ogubji is poetry editor at The Nervous Breakdown. His poems are a wild hip-hop ride through Igbo culture and Western classicism. Read about Uche’s literary jump start at “The Anthill” in Nsukka, Nigeria and more in Issue 2.
